What are the objects (looks like a punch and two nails) in the second and third to last photos?

Hi! Don't know if you ever gt an answer on that one, but what you have is a nemertean, or ribbon-worm. The structure visible through the body wall in some of the pics are stylets that they use to puncture prey.

Nope never got an answer. Thanks so much - I will make sure not to be swallowed by these worms, guess it is a horrible death :S
